SMITE's competitive eSports league is headed to the Xbox One

Are you an avid SMITE player on Xbox One? Well, we have good news for you. With Season 2 of Smite coming to an end earlier this week, Hi-Rez Studios is looking to the future with the announcement of the Xbox One SMITE Pro League. Qualifiers begin this Spring starting on March 19 with the official season starting during the Summer.

If you would like to take part in the tournament, but aren't a part of a team, don't fret. Starting February 6 through February 7, you can take part in the Xbox One SMITE Combine. This is essentially a hub that allows you to show off your SMITE skills in front of Scouts of different teams so that they can recruit you.

However, if you want to be a part of the Combine players must meet these requirements:

  • Your account must be level 30
  • You must be at least Platinum 5 in Leagues: Conquest
  • Your account must be in good standing
  • You must be at least 13 years of age as pursuant to the SMITE Terms of Service
  • You must be able to use the official voice communication software of the SPL.

If you don't meet those requirements, you can still be on a team that participates in the Qualifiers, but you can't participate in the Combine.

The Xbox One SMITE Pro League seems to be still somewhat in the planning process since the grand-prize still has yet to be announced but they have hinted at it being crowd-funded which we have seen recently with the Halo Championship Series. Also, sign-ups for the League aren't ready just yet, but we suggest keeping a close eye to the official SMITE Pro League website for when you can finally sign-up.

SMITE is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena that unlike most MOBAs, focuses on combat by having players play in third-person. The game recently came out of BETA back in August and has seen great reviews since launch.
